    Just out of interest,

    Would anyone be interested in attending a cooking course before you go to uni?

    Just to gain your confidence and have a small list of foods you can go into uni and cook before you tackle halls?

    I would be interested to know!

    For me, no... I can already cook relatively well (if I do say so myself!), and so I wouldn't find this particularly beneficial - saying that, I do know some people who have said they'd love to know how to cook more...

    At uni, for me, the limitation is more that I can't be bothered to cook much rather than not being able to xD

    I'm not sure if I'm honest. It's always nice to learn new things and a cooking course could certainly do that but I like the idea of learning from my parents rather than a course - knowledge of how they cooked some delicious stuff for years of your childhood being passed down is a strong sentimental reason for me.

    I would agree with this actually - much of what I cook is because of what I had when I was younger, and a nice meal for me, is as much about the joy of having it, and the memories, rather than just cooking something up!

    I could definitely see for people who don't really care about that though, that just getting some good cooking skills would be useful... Especially for technique perhaps...

    I can cook well enough for myself, but I'd still go just to learn more.
    Depends on what you will be offering to teach.
